“This CZ 101 was purchased by me when they first came out. It shows wear on the underside from sliding it on and off the keyboard stand (photo’s 4 & 5). The rest shows very little wear for a keyboard that’s over 30 years old but I did include a photo of the left side of the face to show a minor blemish. I do not have the owners manual but it can be downloaded in a PDF file for free on line and I encourage the buyer to download the manual immediately after purchase to have it when the CZ 101 arrives. I have the Data Source book which will explain how to program many more sounds. The back of the book and a few of the back inside pages are stained but easily readable as you can see in the photos.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Selling part of my rig, the highly coveted CZ-101. This awesome little synth has some scratches and small dings on corners, but no major damages. All buttons and ports tested and working. Power Supply is included.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
“This is a Casio CZ-101 Digital Synthesizer. It comes with Operation Manual, AC Adapter and Patch Cord for amp or stereo (it has no internal speaker). This unit has been sitting on a shelf in the basement for many years. It cleaned up nicely. I hooked it up to my guitar amp and it works great. I played around with it for about a half hour and found no problems. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
This particular unit has a replacement LED screen that’s black on red. The screen is slightly offset, though someone crafty could probably open it up to adjust. Also, the middle ‘B’ key is a little looser than the rest, as shown in the pictures. You can’t really feel it while playing, and it doesn’t fall out or anything, but if you try you can lift it higher than the rest. Again, someone crafty might be able to replace it easily.
Otherwise, the synth is in working condition. Comes with a power supply, although the CZ-101 needs batteries installed to store patches when powered off.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

A vintage ’80’s instrument. This is the Casio keyboard only and does not have the power supply or cartridge, but these items are easy to pickup.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
“This comes with the power supply ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
All keys tested and do play noise when pressed.
I don’t have a power adapter to add. It’s currently running on batteries.
3 keys have issues. In the 5th picture, you’ll notice the 3rd key from the left has a bad spring. When pushed down, it stays down and needs to be manually lifted. In pictures 6 and 7, you’ll notice two keys that are loose and make a little bounce back when pressed. All 3 keys do play noise when pressed. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
When i first received this item there were 6 very corroded batteries inside. i removed them and removed the backplate to remove some of the corrosion. the last 3 pictures show it after i cleaned it out. You can see in the last picture the metal plate that covered the batteries has lots of corrosion residue that doesnt come off.
I put in 6 D batteries and plugged a pair of headphones in and it works, music comes through fine. All of the notes register and play ok, though you have to press them down fairly straight, theres a little bit of friction between the keys. All the controls in the center and on the left side of the keyboard work. The EFFECT PROGRAMMER and DATA ENTRY buttons all work, including the PITCH BEND and VOLUME knobs.
The CURSOR RIGHT and OCTAVE buttons tend to get a little bit stuck in the pressed down position.
The board in the back in pic 10 with the little brown piece of paper that has black around the edges is the suspected broken board. I think this part corresponds to the the programming module. I think this entire board may be fried.
I make this conclusion because while no matter what combination of buttons i press, i cannot get any of the buttons in the right half of the board to register or the LEDs to light up or affect the sound in anyway. That includes ENV STEP ENV POINT INITIALIZE VIBRATO OCTAVE or any of the PARAMETER BUTTONS including DETUNE and the 2 MODULATION buttons. The MASTER TUNE buttons dont seem to do anything either.
The only button that seems to work on that side is the LINE SELECT Button on that side, and of course the power button.
I only tested the audio phones port out, not the line out or any of the other ports. Since im selling it as is, im not guaranteeing anything else beyond whats been described.

” Casio CZ 101 vintage digital synth. This synth is faulty and therefore is listed as for parts or not working. The synth turns on, but will not change the patch settings, sticking on the first sound in the bank of presets. This fault has only recently appeared, and so is probably repairable. It comes with the original books. The original power supply has a broken cable and so is not working.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
Functionally, this synthesizer scores a 10 out of 10. All keys, buttons, sliders, wheels, inputs & outputs work as they should. The LCD screen is clearly visible, as are the red lights above each button.
Cosmetically, this synthesizer scores a 9 out of 10. There are minimal scratches, marks, blemishes etc. spotted throughout the outer casing. The two keytar pegs are still intact & can be used with a guitar strap if desired. The battery compartment may still work, but it has not been tested.
Included in this auction are the following:
Casio CZ-101 Phase Distortion Synthesizer

“check out the others on ebay and then this one. Best deal on here. I have a Casio CZ-101. It has the original case, power pack, and cable. The original owner put stick on label’s on it with the date July 30 1985. It is in outstanding condition. Plugged it up to a amp and as far as I can tell everything works as it should. If something doesn’t work I just don’t know what it is. I play guitar and no nothing about keyboards. But it does seem that it all works. The case is also in great shape. It does have the original owners name on the aluminum edge in black sharpie.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Purchased new in the mid-80’s
The batteries leaked inside it and it’s never been the same, since. There is some discoloration of the case where the leakage occurred.
It does produce sound, but the sound is “noisy.” This is why it’s being sold ‘AS-IS”
All the LEDs work, as do the keys. The LCD Display, when it works, is somewhat scrambled.
It is most likely suitable for parts.
It does come with an original Casio AD-5U AC Adapter; two RAM cartridges: one being the original Casio RA-3 single-bank (new battery installed), and the other being a RARE EZ-CZ 4-bank cartridge (needs two AAA batteries).
The COMPLETE set of three original manuals and the original MIDI Implementation Chart is included, as well as a gig-bag (made for the Roland SH-101, but fits the CZ, albeit loosely).” Click here to visit listing on eBay
” A vintage 1986 Casio CZ 101 synthesizer in nearly perfect cosmetic condition. The synthesizer will not power on–most likely due to two loose solder joints at the power connection which I could see and move after removing the bottom cover. I don’t have the time or ability to solder this so it would be a cheap fix if you can do it. If this is the problem & is fixed, it can be powered up with the AC adapter or D size batteries.
Other than that issue, every button and key always worked as new on this synthesizer and has rarely been used.
The padding under the cover of the battery compartment is gone, but that can easily be fixed as well.
Included is the original instruction book, original Casio AC adapter, cable for connection to an amp, and padded carrying case (with a phone number written in marker).” Click here to visit listing on eBay
